Below will be a running and updated record of projects and item’s I’m currently working on that don’t involve my current job at Ewald Consulting.
1. Computer Science BA at University of Minnesota
Currently, in Spring 2013, I am enrolled in CSCI 2021 – Machine Architecture and Organization and CSCI 4041 – Algorithms and Data Structures. Coding projects, if applicable, will be posted on my github.
2. Udacity Online Courses
Udacity is a free online course hub with numerous classes available to take on-demand. These give me more practical knowledge in addition to the conceptual material I’m taking at the U. Currently, I’ve only completed CS101 (Intro to CS), but currently I’m most of the way done with CS253 (Web Development), and am also enrolled in CS262 (Programming Languages).
I’m also interested in CS258 (Software Testing: Make Software Fail), CS212 (Design of Computer Programs), and CS259 (Software Debugging). I take these classes when I have time, which is usually in between classes.
3. Clementine Music Player Addon
I want to test my development skills and create a new feature to the Clementine music player (which I use currently on my home computer – it has all the features I want except one). It will be adding an option to ‘clean up’ your library, not unlike what iTunes does when you add music to its player. I’m doing this because my music library is curently an unorganized blob of junk with no folder structure whatsoever.
It’s written entirely in C++, which I have zero experience with, so that will be a complete learning experience for me. I’m still tinkering, and trying to learn the language, so this is a lower priority project as I learn more C++. That’s coming when I take 3081W at the U of M.
